Time to reset and maximise our opportunity – life after EU funding

Published : 22/06/21 | Categories: Funding | Influencing |

As the Welsh voluntary sector charts the path ahead in a landscape without access to EU funding, 3-SET have organised an event to bring organisations together and help shape workplans moving forward.

The last 12 months have been a time of significant change for communities across Wales and the voluntary sector has needed to change the way it has worked to provide the support needed. New relationships have been forged and old relationships strengthened.

Our withdrawal from the European Union has provided uncertainty, particularly for those organisations who rely on European Funding to deliver essential services within communities. We are now beginning to understand the new structures being put in place for us to access replacement funding and some of the opportunities that may present themselves to us.

WORK IN COLLABORATION

The voluntary sector can make a bigger difference together and now is the time for us to come together to ensure we maximise these opportunities both for the future and to ensure funds are co-ordinated and add value for the remainder of the European funding programme. We will need to use our collective influence to ensure the new structures developed to distribute replacement EU funding meet the needs of our diverse communities.

We will need to continue to build and strengthen relationships and collectively demonstrate the impact the voluntary sector in Wales can have in reducing disparities in social and economic wellbeing within and between places and people.

On 13 July, 10am – 11.30am, we would like to bring together people with an interest in this work to provide an update on what we know so far and develop a workplan for the future.

This session is open to any voluntary organisation with an interest in the areas covered by the replacement funds not just those who have previously accessed European funding.
